For those of you with meters doing your own calibrations:
This is not uncommon.
1. Do a GS / Gamma run.
2. Write down the 90% measurements.
3. Adjust 80%
4. Check 90% and see if it has changed.
If 90% has changed you need to experiment and look at other luminance valuations vs the control used to calibrate. You might need to monitor one parameter such as 90% while adjusting with the 80% controls, etc.
This varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, model to model, year to year and is merely one of the "tricks" used in calibration. Yes, it might take a long time to get the results you want, but this is why, as someone dedicated to getting the best calibration for which your display is capable, you press on to the best of your display's ability. Never give up. Keep looking, keep asking....
